The most affordable energy is the energy you never use. That's the concept behind energy efficiency efforts across Michigan.

To help local governments with practical advice on issues related to clean energy, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) has partnered with the Graham Sustainability Institute at the University of Michigan to present a series of webinars.

The webinars will feature local governments from across the state — both large and small — sharing their successes and challenges in improvement the energy efficiency of their buildings or moving toward more renewable energy. These interactive webinars will allow for plenty of time to ask questions.

The first three webinars scheduled are:

EGLE’s Energy Efficiency Programs for Communities
Wednesday, October 7 from 2 to 3 p.m.

The Michigan Energy Code Adoption Process
Thursday, October 15 from 1 to 2 p.m.

Energy Benchmarking for Municipal Facilities
Thursday, October 22 from 1 to 2 p.m.

Future topics in this series include:

  • Energy audits for municipal facilities.
  • Financing municipal improvements and energy efficiency.
  • Helping facilitate rooftop solar.

More information and registration details can be found on the Community Energy website.
